Japanese/Japanese Dictionary ?

Postby Alghazanth » Sun 02.17.2008 2:29 pm

I've been using Wakan and Rikaichan for quite a long time on my computer and I feel it's time to switch to an J-J dictionary. But the problem is I couldn't find any good J-J dictionary ; nor a suitable file to replace the J-E in Rikaichan.

I already have a paper 国語辞典 in my hands but would also like to use one on my pc

Have any recommendations ?

Thanks in advance

goo.ne.jp has a JJ dictionary; I don't know of any downloadable ones, though.

Thanks for the site. I was using http://www.sanseido.net/ as online dictionary but since I don't have an internet connection at home I'm looking for an offline one ; which I believed there should be more than one ; but now I am very surprised and disappointed by not coming across any... :(

The ones you can download aren't free, and for the most part the sites that sell them don't sell to people who don't have Japanese addresses. (Has something to do with Japanese laws on exporting software.)
